there with the the snow blowers and shovels clearing it for the guests. but a lot of the city sidewalks have not been touched. a couple right here behind me walking in the street. the streets have become the sidewalks. obviously people who have pets have to come outside to let their pets do what they need to do. and the street's the best place to do it. we are starting to see some traffic. and i believe that's interstate 95 over here to my left. i am seeing cars and trucks passing down through the interstate. but keep in mind that it's going to be awhile. i don't know if governor chaffey is going to open the roadways back up today. again the priority is to get the roadways cleared. it's going to be tougher for crews to do that if people decide let's go out and take a look and see how bad things are. they want you to stay home. give them a day. and then maybe tomorrow things are going to be a little bit better. >> stay home. watch it on tv. you can get out perhaps better tomorrow. ron mott thanks for the report. >>> let's go to another area buried under deep snow. that's connecticut. we have nbc's ron

, the storm center itself is in the vicinity of cape cod and from connecticut to long island. new york city is on the west edge of the most activity as far as snow is concerned and connecticut has the highest measurements right now with two feet of snow and as you can see on the radar, still blustering. >> as john was mentioning, the snow doesn't look like it wants to move out very fast. it has the potential to be a record-breaker. >> this morning 600 businesses and homes without power, the errant is closed. thousands of flights are grounded. james gray has more. >> the amount of snow across the northeast. in some areas including boston, accumulations could reach three feet or more. some of that snow pushed by winds of up to 75 miles an hour. a brutal combination creating dangerous blizzard conditions. the storm has literally stopped most of new england in its tracks. more than 1,800 cancellations at area airports and 4700 flights canceled nationwide. the governor of massachusetts today ordered all cars off the roadaway starting at 4:00 p.m. after this 19-car pileup in maine. scattered cars

. a blizzard warning for parts of the northeast. now in effect for areasen n. and around new york city, connecticut, all the way up into new england, including boston and ears beyond. some areas could see two feet or more of snow. the experts say this could be among the top ten snow storms ever recorded in new england. that's saying quite a lot indeed. our chief meteorologist rick reichmuth live with the changing weather first alert forecast now, rick? i'm seeing from your reports the snow totals are going up and times are changing, right? >> going to start overnight tonight. when you wake up tomorrow morning everybody is going to be seeing the snow. you have to be very ready for it these two storms, you see them getting much closer than where they were yesterday. the main energy of this storm is back behind the rain. this is all headed off towards kind of the northeast. it's going to exit the atlantic coast side snow around chicago and much of michigan. this is is a good 6 to 8-inch snowfall for a lot of those people that combines and meets somewhere here off of the mid-atlantic coast
to these type of storms and to use common said stay off the city. stay home. >> this could be the similarities between the historic 1978 and today would not be quite as dramatic. >> for some, that stalledstall.t instead the two-three days it more perhaps just 24 hours. >> the hardware stores, groceries stores and with everybody is being advised to ride it out. and here in boston they are expecting to see the of worst of this with the possibility of a two-3 in. per hour. and also along the coast of winds of 75 mph and the risk of flooding. tory done it-- dunnin....affected airports include boston, newark, and j-f-k. so far this morning. 16 flights to boston have been cancelled. around 35 flights to j-f-k have been cancelled. and 13 departing flights to newark have been cancelled. nationwide, airlines have instituted flexible rebooking waivers and are pre-emptively canceling more than 3,000 flights ahead of the major winter storm. we do not have to worry about snowfall but what about rainfall? >> the southern portion of the bay area is contending with some great. we do see some light rainfall fo
heard from mike seidel in massachusetts. it's really bad there. it sounds like at least in new york city here, it may not be as bad as we thought it might get. >> yes. one little spot that didn't do so bad. we didn't think it would be historic in new york city, not like what we're seeing in hartford. we krnt goiweren't going to get points in connecticut like we were in rhode island and massachusetts. the wine gud gusts, the worst o, we saw the gust to 76 in boston, which is super impressive. i'm sure that did some damage all by itself. with the weight of the snow on the trees, i'm sure there's a lot of downed trees. i'm sure the power outages are doubling. here's a look at the storm. this looks almost like a huge hurricane. this is a big winter blizzard, call it a nor'easter if you want. we haven't had one location with three hours of visibility less than a quarter mile and winds above 35 miles per hour. that's the criteria. you need to meet both of those for three hours to be considered a blizzard. we've been close in areas like providence and boston but not quite yet. this isn't our wi
